Delightful bushland, hanging swamps, wetlands, waterfalls, plenty of heritage. Tracks & boardwalks, some rough & slippery, some connecting streets.
This gpx file does not detour to look at Mermaid Pool as access track was closed on the day. The access path down to the pool is from King St (after crossing footbridge over the creek from where you can view the waterfall). This detour adds 200m to total distance.
Suitable stopping points include The Bluff, Natural Bridge and the Manly Dam playground.
Starting point the trackhead for Timbergetters Track (with shelter) northern side of Seaforth Oval carpark. Note there are parking restrictions.
